I, Tonya: Indie Sparks Interest in Tonya Harding via ABC News

ABC News will air a lengthy interview with Tonya Harding on January 11 for the next chapter of “Truth and Lies” docu-series.

The two-hour special builds off the interest in the 1994 Harding-Nancy Kerrigan scandal spurred by the movie I, Tonya, starring Margot Robbie as Harding and Allison Janney as Golden, which was released by Neon on December 8.

“Truth and Lies: The Tonya Harding Story” recounts the story of the attack on Kerrigan plotted by Harding’s ex-husband, Jeff Gillooly. Harding’s rival was clubbed on the knee at the 1994 U.S. Figure Skating Championships, weeks before Harding and Kerrigan were to compete in Olympic events in Lillehammer, Norway.

Harding, interviewed by Amy Robach, talks about the media storm, her strained relationship with her mother, and being disgraced in the world of figure skating.

Gillooly and others served prison time for the attack.

Harding admitted to withholding information from police and received three years probation and a $160,000 fine. She was banned for life from the U.S. Figure Skating Association and lost her 1994 U.S. championship title.
